Application Note: Improved Blood Alcohol Analysis by Resolution of Propanal from Ethanol Using Two Unique GC Column Phases, Zebron™ ZB-BAC1 and ZB-BAC2
25 February 2013

Though the determination of Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) using Gas Chromatography (GC) is routinely used, the analytical procedure is not infallible. This application note demonstrates a method for resolving propanal from ethanol for accurate BAC analysis via headspace GC using two novel GC phases, Zebron ZB-BAC1 and ZB-BAC2. This allows laboratories to ensure the utmost accuracy when doing BAC analysis.
